I have a DC F20 and am using the pneumatic B&D retracts. They work very well and are tough as nails. I'm sure with some modification, you can get them to fit. Check out tower for the latest price (~$90). I also have spring air and they are good as well, but obviously more $$$.

I installed 605 Robarts just because that was what was recommended. I'm a little disappointed in how much plastic is in the Robarts. The Spring Airs, at least from looking at their website, seem to be nearly all metal (aluminum?). I might try them if I had to do it again.
